If I Crave it, will it Happen?


I have a craving to go bowling with a group of people. It’s been a LONG time since I have done this,

Wait – have I EVER bowled with a group of ADULTS, or was that a movie I watched?

I have a craving to go dancing. I can say for sure that it has been over a year since I have done this. A YEAR. That is pathetic.

I have a craving to smack my husband - (Did I just type that??) Whoops!

I have a craving to go to a little town crammed with interesting shops and spend money!


I have a craving to fly somewhere. It has been embarrassingly too long since I have bought a plane ticket and flown anywhere. Thank you crappy economy.

I have a craving to MOVE. I am currently going on my second longest stay in a home after moving 12 times. Every time I open a cupboard that is in a bit of disarray, I crave to start packing and set up house all over again.

I have a craving to have an all-girls sleepover party. For me not the little ones. Where we do too much laughing and acting like we were 15 again.

I have a craving to go to a Rodeo – Me, the girl who strongly dis-likes country music, loves bull riding.

I have a craving to go to a concert, a bachelorette party, an adult’s only party of any kind.

I have a craving to hang out with the kids and play games all day – under one condition – the house has to be already clean and we must wear pajamas. (One winter day a few years ago when all the kids could still tolerate each other, I took off of work and made the kids pick one snack, and one game to play each. We all wore jammies and ate junk food while playing games and it was so much fun!)

I have a craving to go to my Nannie and Poppies house and hang out with my Mom and Aunt eating birthday cake for no reason, laughing and doing all sorts of bad things. (Like throwing my contacts into my suitcase because I had a little too much to drink and watching them search wobbly and painstakingly through everything to find them.)

I have a craving to watch all my favorite movies in one day.

Unfortunately, my cravings are too big for my wallet and there never seems to be the right amount of time, darn it!

What do you crave right now? Let’s see if we can make them happen from now until the end of winter- which for me should be right about April 30th! I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

Smacking your husband is free, so you can at least cross that off the list!

How 'bout I come visit and we go bowling? It'll be both fun and good for your ego, bc I'm a terrible bowler. But, of course, a fun person. :)

I'm craving a plane trip, too. I'd love to go somewhere. Somewhere warm would be lovely.

oh - a slumber party sounds like so much fun!

i have a craving to travel. i'd love to 'retire' and be able to come and go as i please. i think it's because i feel trapped and know that i'll probably never be able to retire. but... that's ok.

i crave order in my life. i get it in my purse and my underwear drawer. everything in its place. the rest of my house is a wreck but by golly, my underwear is nice and neat and i can tell you exactly where things are in my purse! hehehe!

I'm craving some time off, a plane ride to somewhere warm with palm trees, an ocean breeze, fruity drinks with umbrellas in them and NOT ONE SINGLE PLANNED THING TO DO. But, like you - the wallet and the time are interfering! GRRRRRRR! But, I am also craving for the winter to be over so that I can just ride my john deere and mow the yard in the sunshine, listening to my iPod and enjoying "me time" - THAT is definitely bound to happen in due time. =)
